Standing alone on this ancient hallowed ground
I’ve watched the tides and absorbed the rain
I have been the calm and steady presence
Strength and inspiration to those in dire pain
Steady as she goes, and nothing seems amiss
Not visible is the landslide building from below
Sturdy in appearance could all be stark illusion
As monuments position shifts from its plateau
Years of holding strong in times of dark despair
Surface made of granite hides unstable ground
Centuries old inhabitant of home along this cliff
Could begin to crumble into sea without a sound
I am lifted up to rightful place upon my mountain steep
By ones who sought my wisdom for so very many years
Circumstances table has been turned toward my favor
Hearts I held so steady here to save me from my fears
This rock upon the bluff now returned to its proper home
Continues in it’s vigilance with new knowledge to impart
The strongest surface can be compromised from within
So keep those you love close and always in your heart
Powerful. Perfect depiction of that great image.
